[image]Fires in Mexico and Central America - NASA image created by Jesse Allen, Earth Observatory, using data obtained from the team.
Scattered clouds have done little so far to quench scores of fires burning in southern Mexico and Central America in early May 2005. The region is at the tail end of its several-month-long annual dry season, and fires have been burning and billowing smoke on and off for more than a month. In this image of the area captured by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite on May 8, active fires are marked in red...

The Santa Maria Volcano in Guatemala experienced a small eruption on October 26, 2005. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) flying onboard the Terra satellite took this picture the same day. In this image, the volcano’s summit is identifiable by a small red outline indicating an area hotter than its surroundings. Wafting away from the summit is a thin, faint ash plume that heads southwest toward the Pacific.The Santa Maria Volcano is a <em>stratovolcano</em>: a...

Dozens of fires, marked in red, were scattered across southern Mexico and Guatemala when the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite flew over on May 11, 2004. Because the fires cover a broad region, and are not concentrated in one area, they were probably started for agricultural purposes as farmers clear land for planting. Widespread land use fires are common this time of year in Central America...

[image]Fires in Mexico and Central America - NASA image created by Jesse Allen, Earth Observatory, using data obtained from the team.
On March 22, 2005, dozens of fires were burning across southern Mexico and several Central American countries when NASA’s Aqua satellite passed overhead. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on Aqua captured this image and detected actively burning fires, which are marked with red dots. It’s not possible for MODIS to tell what type of fire is burning, but many of these fires probably have agricultural purposes: clearing land for planting or to renew pasture grasses...

The eruption of Santa Maria volcano in 1902 was one of the largest eruptions of the 20th century, forming a large crater on the mountain’s southwest flank. Since 1922, a lava-dome complex, Santiaguito, has been forming in the 1902 crater. Growth of the dome has produced pyroclastic flows as recently as the 2001—they can be identified in this image.
